The Perfect Polo Shirt

This James Perse polo has the ease of a cotton t-shirt with the tailored look of a collared shirt. He feels like he’s still wearing a t-shirt but you don’t. Everyone wins.

James Perse Sueded Jersey Polo, $95



The Perfect Dress Shirt

The Bonobos Daily Grind shirt is about as low-maintenance as it gets. The wrinkle-free fabric allows you to toss it in the washer + dryer, hang it up, put your collar-stays in, and go. No ironing necessary.

Bonobos Daily Grind Wrinkle-Free Dress Shirt, $98 each or 3 for $225



The Perfect Shorts

We love these J.Crew shorts for their ability to be dressed up for a barbeque with a short-sleeve button-down shirt or dressed down with a t-shirt. Wrinkled cotton shorts, be gone!

J.Crew 9″ Tech Short, $69.50



The Perfect Colored Jean

Colored jeans are kind of like khaki’s cooler cousin. The AG graduate fit is right in-between relaxed and slim-leg. These pants really do it all! Again, he feels like he is wearing his usual, but you know he looks cooler than usual.

AG Graduate Sulfur Quartz Jeans, $178



The Perfect Underwear

The Tommy John boxers are like the Rolls Royce of men’s underwear. The cool cotton fabric wicks sweat and keeps him comfortable all season. They also have undershirts and loungewear too.

Tommy John Cool Cotton Relaxed Fit Boxer, $31



The Perfect Comfy Shoes for Summer

So you’re going out for date night or a party in the summer and he wants to be cool and comfortable? These Cole Haan shoes are made of a knit material, so they are more comfortable than leather in the summer, and the fabric translates to fall and spring. He thinks he’s getting away with wearing comfy sneakers so everyone is happy. The wingtips would work well for a theater date straight from work. I can’t get over how cool they are!
